ELKO, Nev., March 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Thunder Mountain Gold, Inc. (OCBB: THMG) is pleased to announce that the company has staked forty lode claims, covering approximately 800 acres, near Clover Mountain in Owyhee County, Idaho. Historic records indicate limited production of gold and silver ore occurred in the Clover Mountain area in 1917.
The claims cover a large area of hydrothermally-altered, fractured, and brecciated intrusive igneous and extrusive volcanic rocks with elevated gold and related silver-arsenic-antimony-mercury-mineralization. Anomalous gold values obtained from rock chip samples ranged from non-detect to 0.058 ounces, plus anomalous values in claim corner soil samples. The amalous values appear to be associated with stockwork veining in a granitic stock which has been intruded by northeast and northwest trending rhyolitic dikes. The granitic intrusive is overlain by locally silicified rhyolitic tuff. Anomalous base metals values ranging from trace to 1.25% copper and 1.54% zinc were obtained in areas of veining near the contact between the granitic stock and northwest trending rhyolitic dikes. Rock chip and soil samples were analyzed by ALS Chemex Laboratories.
Thunder Mountain is planning to initiate a systematic soil sampling and detailed mapping program in the spring of 2007. Data from these programs will provide a comprehensive data package for potential drill target generation. Additional regional reconnaissance work in the Clover Mountain area is also planned.
